she's tried to influence the education policy and i enjoy talking with her and even more so the older sister who had gone to india to become involved with children who would not have had an education and all the issues related to that. i thought this was interesting and worst doing so i decided the best option was to offer myself to become a nun so at the age of 17 i spoke to the reverend mother to say i decided to become a nun. she said think about it. go away for a year then be will receive you. my parents were very happy with my choice because i honored to be a nun and they're happy to have me another year. they decided nothing was too good for their daughter said they thought they would send me to paris for one year.

education, because i feel that if we educate ourselves, the more we educate ourselves, that we can overcome poverty. and the fact that if we do it as a community, and we stick together, we bond together, we support one another, with education, with health, then we can start to fix some of the issues at the root of the cause. and so we can erase, we can erase families who are struggling to get by on minimum wage. we can erase the drug abuse that we see on the streets and in the home. we can erase the gun violence and the domestic violence, and we can start to bring attention to mental illness. but this can only be done if everyone in the community is invested. so i think it has to be a position that we all take in which we say, yeah, take better care of yourself, yeah, go for your prescreening to make sure that you don't have any ailment that can be detrimental to you down the road. we also can then turn to our youth and our adults and say, "it's okay to get educated on these matters, it's okay to do well in school, for the young person that's in school. it's okay to achieve and be academica
grandson, henry adams, remembered louisa catherine fondly. in his works, the education of the adams, he described louisa catherine and her role in this house and relationship with the family. he felt that she was the odd man out, because she was born in england and educated in france. she remained a foreign personality to many of the adams's. he recollects her sitting in her paneled room, using her silver tea pot that that she brought with her from her home in england to the old house. she would entertain both herself and many guest in this room. john quincy adams and louisa would inherit this home from john adams. i thought about selling it, but then decided that it was important to the family story to hold onto the house for future generations. >> you can visit there today. >> yes. >> wonderful. where the papers? >> they are at the massachusetts historical society in boston. they used to be at the old house would distill my very, but they were transferred to the historical society for safekeeping. >> a question on facebook from genie webber. i have read excerpts from her autobiography

? and for many, will my schools perform to the ability that my kids can get a great education? it's one of the thing that is' important to be relevant. you see, a couple years ago before i was governor there was a young woman named miss sampson in wisconsin in a community called milwaukee where the milwaukee public schools are some of the most challenged in the country. and this young woman was a first-year teacher who was named the outstanding teacher of the year. she got notice about that, and about a week, week and a half later she got a second notice. do you think what that was? she'd been laid off. you see, under my predecessor, they cut funding for education, but they didn't give them anything in return to make up for them, so what happened? when you have less money in those situations even though she was named one of the best teachers in the state in her profession, what happened to her? she was one of the first to be laid off. why? because under the old system of collective bargaining, one of the last hired is the first fired. one of the great things you may not know about in ou

any educator would try to justify any terrorist attacks against the united states that killed 3,000 innocent americans. it's not just this one question. she also says that the test had some other issues as well that talked about whether food and medicine and shelter were rights or responsibilities. her son got that one wrong as well saying it was a responsibility. that it's not the government that should be in your lives making sure there is shelter over your head, making sure you have food on the table, medicine to keep you well and health care essentially. she says this is the american dream that i believe in. that's what i've been trying to teach my kids and this test is going against it. >>brian: it was on facebook and now has become a huge story. an update on that fox news alert. a shooting in quantico, virginia, where a suspected shooter killed two marines and then killed himself. sherry ly joins us live with the details. when did this happen? >> this happened at 11:00 last night at the officer candidate school. we're told that the gunman and the two victims were all activ
, they won't suffer harm. but if they want to give their kids a home education through home schooling, they will be jailed. they would have severe fines. that is what happened before. every family who wants to home school is persecuted in the same way. the justice department is saying that the fines and the jails -- that's not persecution. >> shannon: it's a fact that the police did show up and take the children and force them to go to school in 20 06, when the family was there in germany, electing to have them at home. the obama administration basically said that their experience is the reason they had trouble in germany was because they refused to comply with the law. how could you say it was ever religious persecution, if you are disobeying the law because of religious beliefs? >> that's right. the religious persecution is defined similarly to our constitutional principles. if the law's unconstitutional. if the law violates human rights, have you an asylum claim. if germany wasn't banning home schooling, there wouldn't be an issue and it it wasn't a human rights issue, there wouldn

but look at nondefense discretionary spending. this is education, spending all of the programs that you are passionate about that will be squeezed as entitlement spending is larger and larger. >> they will be squeezed. if we look beyond, look at 2025, 2030, something has to give. we can't keep squeezing nondefense, ndd, nondefense discretionary. that is already pret itty tight. so something will have to give. some combination of higher revenues, finding ways to save on entitlement. not necessarily benefit cuts but ways to save money on entitlements. use the bargaining power of medicare, fine. that's worth talking about but not a reason to not do deficit spending to support the economy now. >> the argument would be, and this is the argue made by bob rubin and many others that do some stimulus spending but put in place a long-term plan to ensure the markets that you have a plan. you are not hostage to fortune in case interest rates spike suddenly. off process in place that allows it to happen and don't get hemorrhaging of nondefense. >> i'd like to me see men and women of goodwill come to
the opportunities that maybe more well educated people have. i blame congress in some way, to leaving these people out in the cold. i think there say lesson here. like in sex ed class, they have kids carry around babies so they know what it is like, baby dolls, so they know what it is like to take care of a baby. i think congress should have to carry around 20 something dolls. and if the doll goes below the poverty line, they have to listen to a lecture by nancy pelosi. that's my idea. >> i was waiting, trying to understand where you were going. i'm kind of with you. but actually to your point, this is something i read in this article in the wall street journal, to your point about maybe feeling disenfranchised. many whose jobs do not give them membership in the professional class turn to a traditional source of young adult identity, parenthood, for meaning, for satisfaction, so young women often drift unintentionally into parenthood with men whom they believe are not good enough to marry or not ready for it. so there is a trend here, and it is tougher for middle class americans, but then you look
, education and voting and that, in fact, the more, the higher socioeconomic classes, the more education, the less likelihood one is to vote for islamists. and, in fact, we could even -- and some of the data shows this -- that less education, um, lower wealth one is more likely to vote for not justice lammists, but the salafi groups and so on. so i i think that's a very, very important -- and i think that's in line with the findings and the arguments that are made here. i also think that the other general trend without overemphasizing it is also valid, and that is that we are likely to see decreasing electoral strength for islamists generally. and there are many reasons for that. some quite simple, that is that, you know, up until 2011, up until the egyptian uprising islamist groups, in particular the muslim brother hood, are really the only serious political actors other than mubarak's ruling party that actually took elections seriously. and there was good reason for that. if you were a rational voter in egypt under mubarak, you stayed home because you knew that your vote didn't mean an

, though, who was able to acquire 1,000 rounds of ammunition. assault weapons, handguns, educational dvds to teach him how to use this stuff. this cannot be right in a civilized society. >> first of all, piers, it's not that i oppose the ban. what i do support is a more healthy debate about the ban, and whatever our legislature, whether state or federal, comes out with, i will support. i'm not a gun person, personally. but i do believe that all sides of the issue need to be focused on and there's other issues that need to be addressed also. mental health checks, access for us. that would be part of the background process. having mental health checks to find out if there's issues within the home. knowing who has these types of weapons. another thing that concerns me is when someone does die who does have weapons. but we're not notified that there are weapons in the home. who takes possession of those weapons for the short term until it's decided who they should go to? then they end up on the streets. so those are the things that i'm concerned about. and i just think that we have to have a
